The President Emeritus and Mrs. Meyerson Award for Distinguished Undergraduate Teaching and Mentoring (the Meyerson Award) was established through a generous gift by the late UB President Emeritus Martin Meyerson and his wife, Margy Ellen, to recognize exceptional teaching and mentoring at the university. It is the highest university award given specifically for undergraduate mentoring. This year’s winners will be recognized in the fall at the university-wide Faculty and Staff Celebration of Academic Excellence [Learn more about The Meyerson Award]
